101 things to do in 1001 days

in modern life i think its quite easy to get sucked up and pulled along, as everything seems to always be moving so fast. all those little things that we always mean to get done or just wanted to one day do get left behind, so when i was recently made aware of the day zero project it seemed like a wonderful way to keep myself focused on all of those goals and ideas that often get neglected. 

the aim: complete 101 tasks in 1001 days.

  5. I am trying to think of a 101 things and have got stuck at 23 - i may be here a while!

  6. Thanks for your support guys! I'll def make sure I update this as much as poss and hopefully do some posts on it occasionally :)

    @claire_x mine took forever to come up with! Go onto the day zero website and have a browse of some other peoples. That gave me lots of inspiration! Goodluck! :)


  7. This idea is amazing, it's like reminding yourself of all the exciting things you should do in life, but wouldn't get round to if it weren't for the list! I think I'm going to do one and then I'll feel like I should do the tasks because I've set myself the challenge!

    I think I'm going to get my family to make a list and if they're ever about to do something on the list but back out I can kindly remind them that they're supposed to stick to it!

    I wish you all the best with your list!
    Take care,
